 Very good experience. Kaz was helpful and responsive thought the process of finding my ideal apartment and also was able to give good advice. Would definitely recommend, particularly to those who could use with full support in English.

SIm from US

Overall a great experience. Very proactive in helping us find apartments that fit our requirements and was well prepared so that applying for the property was quick and easy. If we had any questions, Kaz was quick in finding us the answer and was very transparent with the information for each apartment we visited. 

Andy from Australia

 I can wholeheartedly recommend Kaz to anyone looking for an apartment in Tokyo. Extremely responsive, supportive in the entire process (not just in apartment hunting), and very professional from start to finish.

 Kaz is efficient and great at what he does. He helped me find a nice apartment in almost no time.

Emma from New Zealand

 Kaz was really helpful in finding me an apartment I love. He helped me to navigate dealing with the Japanese companies, kept me updated throughout and explained everything to me as we went. It made the whole process stress-free and I am loving my new place.

Daniel from Hungary

Had a great experience with Hikari Home.

Kaz in particular was very professional in dealing with us, and efficient at searching for and showing us apartments that matched our criteria (and we had a lot). I liked that he was direct with us in terms of our expectations and the reality of the Tokyo housing market, we could adjust our criteria to get the best of compromise.
Also, his responsiveness was especially outstanding and much appreciated, given how fast apartments can disappear from the market!
At the end of our apartment hunt, the contract signing went smoothly and Kaz confirmed and explained all the important details in English to put my mind at ease.

I couldn't be happier I came across Hikari Home, and I will be sure to use their service again in the future!

Thank you very much Kaz, it has been a pleasure!

 Kaz listened carefully to my requests about finding the right apartment. He provided several options, sometimes offering possibilities that had not occurred to me. His responses were at all times clear, direct and timely. Kaz listened to my feedback and took my thoughts on board. I would recommend him for his professional understanding, patience and dedication in seeing clients housed happily and comfortably.


Zack from US

 I had Kaz as my agent and he was very helpful and patient in finding my apartment. He listened to what I was looking for and was able to find me an apartment that was suitable. I would recommend Kaz if you're looking for good English service.



Martin from US

 My girlfriend and I were looking for our first apartment in Tokyo and  Kaz did a great job for us! He presented us with a lot of options, helped every step of the way and even negotiated our rent down! Highly recommended.

Jessica from France

Kaz was really helpful and helped me to find a great place in a few days! I totally recommend. He will also help to understand the agreement and translate for you in English! 👍

Zachary from US

After weeks of working with Japanese agencies and not knowing what was going on half the time I finally gave in and decided to use Kaz as so many of my non Japanese coworkers had recommended him. Wish I had started working with him from the beginning. With 2 weeks until my move date, Kaz was able to show me a good number of apts within my budget and preferred train line. He was also in regular contact by email and let me know the situation each step of the way. I couldn’t exactly get my dream apt this time due to time constraints but I was able to secure a good place right away. Thanks Kaz!

Dan from US

Kaz was awesome. He stayed on top of the process and made sure that secured our place by acting quickly and professionally. Also, he was very helpful in eliminating the language barrier for us. He really made the process a good overall experience.

Kelly from US

Great experience with Kaz. He is professional, friendly and helpful. We are very grateful for his guidance and assistance with our property search and move. Highly recommend!

Luke from UK

Kaz and Hikari Home, have been excellent in dealing with my recent move. Super helpful and informative on letting sand help with domestic utilities. I can highly recommend them and Kaz is on hand to help with any worries or issues you might have.

Ashley and Mike from US

It was our first time renting a home in Tokyo, and Kaz made our experience from end-to-end super easy and efficient. He took the time to understand what we wanted up front, and showed us the perfect place on our first outing. He has been so helpful (and patient) through the entire process, and he's very responsive! I highly recommend working with Kaz because your search will be much, much easier; we certainly would again!

Thank you, Kaz!

Nick from US

What can I say? Well, a lot actually. As a foreigner coming in and trying to find a place, we went through a few real estate agents. they mostly showed us corporate housing type units which is what we specifically said we didn't want. We wanted a smaller building, maybe a house with a local vibe. After looking at many places and nearly giving up, we met Kaz. We told him exactly what we wanted and to our shock, he showed us places that actually had all the things we wanted, he negotiated for us, and was a real quality ally in finding a place here in Tokyo. I would highly recommend that everyone give Kaz a call. I only wish we could have called him earlier! We wasted so much time with other agents and with Kaz, we got a place in the first 2 weeks! He translated the entire contract for us as well, I can't say enough good things about this guy.

Joelle from Australia

Finding a home in Tokyo was the one aspect of the move from LA that we were most nervous about. We were very lucky that friends introduced us to Kaz, and working with him made the experience completely different and more positive than we had expected. Kaz made the effort to really understand what we were looking for and found us a place that was perfect. Someone else had already applied for it, and even though we applied second and have a dog, our application was successful, due to what I can only imagine was some Kaz magic. He went above and beyond by assisting us with all the steps of the process. I would very much recommend working with Kaz.

Philippe from France

Kaz was very helpful, professional and responsive throughout the process. He also speaks great English, understood well my preferences and even took care of cancelling the utilities at my old place.

Leah from the Philippins

Kaz was very helpful from beginning to end of the process of looking for an apartment and even after I have already settled. He was responsive to any questions and you can expect an answer even late at night. He’s also fluent in English so very helpful for someone one who doesn't speak Japanese. Kaz explained the steps as well as all the paperwork involved. Apartment-hunting was made easy by Kaz. I recommend him to everyone looking to move in Tokyo.

Sam from Australia

Kaz is a true professional in the real estate world. Being fluent in English is obviously a positive, but he also cuts through some of the red tape for you which is the main positive in my opinion. Highly recommended to anyone looking for an apartment in Tokyo.

Richard from UK

If you are looking for an English speaking realtor in Tokyo I would highly recommend Kaz. Excellent service and prompt action on any questions I had. Will definitely use again!

KC from Taiwan

Look for Kaz if you want to settle in Tokyo. As a foriegner just arrived in Tokyo, Kaz is super helpful in terms of finding a place or share information on the market. Very nice and easy going person. He's also very patient listener and always get things done fast. I'm a picky person to find the right place, Kaz would help you find what you want. I would recommend connect with him as you start you adventure in tokyo.

Quan from Vietnam

"Kaz was extremely easy to work with, he knew exactly what I wanted and was always very responsive to emails/calls. I have moved several times before but this is the first time I'm truly happy with the apartment I found, thanks to Kaz. Therefore, I highly recommend his service without any reservation."

Mimi from US

Harada-san was very helpful when looking for a new home. His English was amazing, and he always replied quickly to my emails. I cannot emphasize enough how polite and patient he was, so if you're looking for a realtor please do not have any doubts with him.

Menya from US

Kaz is fantastic! The two times I've worked with him I've been able to find my dream location in just a few weeks with no hassle and perfect communication in English.

If you're looking for a place in Tokyo, Kaz is your man.

Nazrene from UK

My office in Tokyo arranged for Kaz-san to assist me. I was very impressed with his immediate responses and understanding of my preferences and taste. On our second visiting appointment, I found a home which ticked all the boxes! The service was extremely professional and everything went smoothly without a hitch. Highly recommended.

Sophia from US

Kaz was absolutely amazing in helping me find my apartment. I don't speak any Japanese and he was able to navigate and help me through every step of the way. Would recommend Kaz to anyone looking for a new place!

Alessandro from Italy

I got my first apartment in Tokyo with the help of Hikari Home. Although I had serious time restrictions, I could find a very nice place to live at a reasonable price. Kaz has been helpful with everything, and he's been very easy to deal with, even if my knowledge about Japanese rules and language was close to none. Highly recommended.



Elena from Canada

I just moved into my new apartment on the weekend, and it's perfect for me. I contacted Hikari home a month before I came to Japan. Kaz got in touch with me right away, and asked me exactly what I was looking for and what I needed to have ready in order to secure a place. When I arrived he had a list of places that met my requirements, I chose one, we went to see it the next day, and then I got it. The whole process was very smooth and Kaz answered any questions I had with clarity.
He went over all the terms and conditions with me so I would be prepared and be able to have a smooth transition into Tokyo life.
Thank you Kaz and Hikari Home!
I would 100% recommend!

Younes from France

Mister Kaz did a great job by fully understanding my need and quickly providing me a great selection of apartments well located in a short time. I definitely recommand his service!

Kelley from Tokyo

Kaz once again has helped me move to another apartment. He is the best ever and I will always use his services or recommend them to anyone who wants to move. He responds quickly, drops everything to help you, and is just really pleasant to work with. Not only that, he is more than happy to help you after the move or with any questions that you have. You rock Kaz!

Julie and Luke from Australia

Tokyo's rental market is a minefield but Kaz made it all too easy for us to find a place to live. He was knowledgable, attentive, and above all, very friendly. We were very lucky to be put in contact with him

Matt from US

Kaz was wonderful to work with. I had been working with another agent prior to connecting with Kaz, who was just not putting in much effort to find an apartment for me. Kaz right away spent time learning what my requirements were and started making and showing suggested properties. He worked around my schedule to fit in viewings, and quite quickly identified a property, and worked with my employer to get the paperwork completed. I highly recommend Kaz for foreigners looking for an apartment in Tokyo

Myles from US

Kaz Harada is the best agent I found; I'd recommend him to anyone looking for a home in Tokyo. His streamlined, interactive search process, which includes the tenant (me) in the actual search process from the first step was extremely helpful. We first met at his office where we searched the available homes database by move-in date. We created an exhaustive list of candidate homes and set a date to visit each of them.

When I found a home I liked, Kaz made the entire process from application to move in as easy as possible. Helping me translate and negotiate at every step of the way.

Before meeting Kaz I tried searching for homes myself online and looking with a few other agents. The process was much easier with Kaz. I wish I had gone with him from the start.
